The atmosphere is lovely. I thought that everything being white, would feel cold and uninviting, but I was incorrect. The white gives everything an nice clean look, but it is also very warm and inviting. The bartender was very nice and welcoming and made an excellent martini. Although the hostess(es) greeted us, I still felt that they were uninterested in... More

We ate well, good food. Service was good as well. I found it noisy bcs of the acoustics, and did not particularly like the decoration, kind of cold.

This trendy corner spot is as always whenever I have visited a place that does not disappoint. The staff is friendly and accommodating. It hears toward a trendy " going out for a dinner, drinks and fun " crew. It has beautiful white decor. Great different rooms and a nice bar up front. Evan the owner is as always a... More

Stella had been recommended by a friend of one of three in our group. It turned out to be a great recommendation. We didn't have a reservation on a Sunday early evening but they were able to seat us indoors. The interior is attractive, clean lines, and not bad noise mitigation. From start to finish, we had excellent, attentive service... More

Service was impeccable, food was delicious - highly recommend the pizza with figs and mushrooms. The variety of cocktails and their deliciousness was perfect. I was glad we were not sat inside because it got a bit too noisy there later on. The patio seating was perfect for a nice summer evening - even got treated to a parade while... More

The crowd is young and trendy. The noise level can get high at times. We had appetizers with the Beet salad being excellent. The entrees were average to excellent. A very nice wine cellar. The service was very professional and helpful

I tried this popular-with-the-in-crowd place with a friend for brunch. It lived up to it's reputation. Minimalist white contemporary surroundings make for a cheery place in the south end. As it can be very busy, we made reservations and were seated promptly. The staff was very courteous and attentive. The food was delicious (I had the eggs benedict, my friend... More
